The post in which I do a 200 ITEM GIVEAWAY!!!!

Wowza!  I started this blog a year and a half ago and never imagined that it would turn into what it has.  I never thought that I would be doing my 200th post!  For me, this has been a journal, a documentary, a file, a place to speak my mind, and a place to call mine.  Along the way, I have cyber-met tons and tons of spectacular people.  I have learned so much about myself, about others, and about life.  Through my blog I have grown a lot.  I want to thank each and everyone of you for being supportive.  Whether you read my words, comment back to me, or pass along my links, I feel so blessed to be able to be a part of your life.  I cross my fingers everyday that I am able to provide something for you...whether it is a common mindset, a little inspiration, reassurance, contemplation, or just a happy smile that I pass along.  You make me feel special, and I hope that I make you feel the same.
I have always tended to be the one that starts something new and ends up putting it to the side and never finishing it.  With this blog, I guess I kind of thought it might end up that way.  Instead, it has blossomed.  For one of the few times, I have actually carried on!  For that, I want to celebrate.  This is a huge accomplishment for me, too!  As part of the celebration, I want to do a little GIVEAWAY!!!  I want to show you, my readers, how grateful I am for your encouragement along this journey of mine.  In celebration of my perseverance, my dedication, and my sticking-to-it-for-once project, I want to give one of my very special readers 200 THINGS.  You read that right: I WANT TO GIVE AWAY 200 THINGS to one very special and lucky reader that has made me feel successful!
To be considered for this giveaway, please leave me a comment.  In the comment, tell me what keeps you coming back to read my blog.  You can comment about things you like, things you would like to see, or pretty much any way that I could make this blog better.  I am all about constructive criticism (but please don't be down-right mean)!  In the comment, make sure that you leave an email address or other way to get in touch with you in case you win.  The lucky winner will be chosen on June 7th, so you have a week to get your comments in.  I will announce the winner shortly after that date.  If you are new to this blog, tell me how you found me and what caught your eye.  If you want to post about the GIVEAWAY on your site, leave me a link in a seperate comment, and you will be considered twice!!! 
 I love you guys, and hope that this upcoming summer is wonderful and sunny for you!  Thank you so much for all your kind thoughts and encouragement.

  1. Hi There! Sorry you didn't get any entries in your contest! I'm a new follower, I just found you through your comment on my good friend Dianna's post here:


    I'll continue reading because I am a fellow crafter, though I'm admittedly fairly new at it, having only gotten myself a sewing machine last year for Christmas. So far I've kept things to quilting and sewing in general (a few pillowcases, skirts for a gal pal's little girl, that sort of thing) but look forward to getting more adventurous in the future!

    Anyway, it's nice to "meet" you, and thanks for the chance to win! My email address is stephmabry_at_yahoo-dot-com. :)


I am delighted that you are taking the time to give your feedback! I do try to send you back a message, but please do not be sad if I do not get to it for a few days. Thank you for your support!
